Biology Week

We are very pleased to hear from organisations and individuals who are keen to help make Biology Week a success. 

You don’t have to be a member of the Royal Society of Biology to organise events; we welcome the support of scientists, teachers or anyone who has a passion for biology!

Need help thinking of an event?

You can organise lectures, debates, school visits, field trips, hands-on demonstrations, a Big Biology Day or anything that will help people discover more about the wonders of biology.

We've put together packs to help you with some ideas to come up with your own Biology Week event!
